Per correr miglior acque alza le vele |
omai la navicella del mio ingegno, |
che lascia dietro a sé mar sì crudele |
Purgatorio i. 1-3
WOW. Thank you for this -- what a voice!(Having just returned from Florence, it's strange to see him paraded as a favourite son, with almost no acknowledgment of his exile. More on blog linked above, but good grief, it was strange.)--j
Thanks for this James. I like the blog. Well done!Yes, the exiled son taken back by force. It is powerful alright. The Franciscans in Ravenna had to hide his bones because they were so worried the Florentines would steal them.
